Commitment to Quality

Custom Engineering, a quality driven fabrication and machining company, takes pride in its high standards and has been an ISO-9001 certified supplier since February of 1997. This certification recognizes Custom Engineering on a worldwide scale for our ability to manufacture high quality products.

ISO-9001:2008 and ASME Section VIII (U-Stamp) Certified
Custom Engineering ships top quality products made to our customers’ specifications. It is our job to ensure that customer requirements and job specifications are understood and communicated to all employees. This is done through controlled documentation, such as procedures and work instructions that detail our quality and manufacturing processes. These procedures and work instructions are periodically evaluated for effectiveness and updated as needed so that we can provide our customers with the high level of quality they have come to expect from Custom Engineering.

Custom Engineering maintains a successful quality assurance program by monitoring and documenting non-conformities of products, as well as problems with the quality system itself. Corrective action reports are initiated to get to the root of a problem, enabling us to solve the problem and not just "cure the symptom." In pursuit of continuous quality improvement, a preventive action program has also been put into place preventing potential problems.

"THE COMMITMENT"
It is the goal of every employee at Custom Engineering to fully meet our customers’ expectations. Our comprehensive quality assurance program, backed up by our ISO-9001:2008 certification and ASME code compliance, enables us to compete successfully worldwide.

Conflict Minerals

Custom Group Industries, by virtue os its customer base, is required to determine through due diligence, that materialseither supplied in the product or materials used to manufacturer theproduct for our customers are free of conflict minerals. custom Group Industries complies with the Dodd-Frank Act.

 

Summary of U.S. Federal Regulations 

 

In July 2010, the U.S. Government signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Dodd-Frank Act"). In August 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") adopted a final rule relating to Conflict Minerals as mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act.  Specifically, Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act requires all SEC registered companies to file certain annual disclosure and reports with the SEC related to use if Conflict Minerals in their products.  All SEC registered companies are required to comply with this final rule for the calendar year beginning January 1, 2013 by Filing a Form SD with the SEC on or before June 2, 2014.  In order to fulfill this reporting requirement, SEC registered Companies must implement a system that will help determine the origin of Conflict Materials in the products that such companies manufacturer or contract to manufacturer.

 

"Conflict Minerals" in this context refers to specific minerals originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the "DRC") and certain adjoining countries, the mining or transportation of which may be used to finance ongoing conflicts or humanitarian crises by certain armed groups.  These nine adjoining Countries are: the Republic of the Congo, Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tansania, Uganda and Zambi.  The conflict Materials include Gold(Au), Tin(Sn), Tantalum(Ta), and Tungsten(W).  These are also referred to as "3TG".

 

In order to learn more about the U.S. regulations ans the subject of Conflict Minerals, please review the SEC's rules, which may be found at http://www.sec.gov/rules/final/2012/34-67716.pdf.

 

Pressure Vessels built to ASME standards 
ASME Section VIII
maintains public safety as the number one requirement for pressure vessel design and fabrication.  ASME Section VIII also sets the standards for material requirements, design requirements, fabrication, non-destructive examination and testing.  Custom Engineering Company ensures that we meet every requirement set by the code.

FARO Laser Tracker to Cut Fabrication Layout Time in Half
(article on faro.com)
The FARO Laser Tracker has versatility to assist with the fit up of large fabricated weldments and the ability to verify GD&T on machined surfaces.  One of the many applications for the Tracker is to layout hole locations on more dynamic weldments, increasing the accuracy while saving setup time.  The portability of the unit allows us to check jobs that are still on a machine to insure a good part before getting released to final inspection, thus reducing handling time.  The accuracy and depth of the real time information is truly the Trackers greatest attribute.  Once measured and saved, jobs are electronically archived for further review and/or to be referenced long after the job has been shipped. 

The FARO Laser Tracker literally has hundreds of applications that are both cost-cutting and time saving.  We are aggressively integrating the Tracker capabilities into everyday productions here at Custom Engineering Company.
